How to Draw Snoopy
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Snoopy, Charlie Brown's pet dog from Charles M. Shultz's comic strip Peanuts. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Snoopy with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy, start with an egglike oval on the top half of the page. Below this oval, draw a shape that looks like a large water drop. These will be the basic shapes for Snoopy's head and body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical line and one horizontal. Draw the horizontal line so it curves slightly and meets the top of the body shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Snoopy's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw Snoopy's ear on the left side of his head below the horizontal construction line. Draw it so it looks like a letter U.
Step 4: Draw Snoopy's arm so it looks like a U shape but slightly longer and on the inside left the body shape.
Step 5: Draw a long, flat oval below Snoopy's body and attach it to his body with two vertical lines. Draw a similar oval that hides behind the first on the right side. Attach this oval to the body by drawing one more vertical line. These will be Snoopy's legs and feet.
